What sets PdM Specialists apart from our competitors?

The most principled consulting companies provide training and support to increase clients’ self-sufficiency.  PdM Specialists not only provides the highest quality services, but also – through our training programs- the tools necessary to reduce your need for services.  Most industries will always need vibration trending, analysis surveys, and some level of continued support.

PdM Specialists works with you improve reliability, predictability, and efficiency.  Therefore, the frequency with which you monitor your equipment may be reduced.  This is accomplished in two ways:  1) Timely reporting of equipment failures and 2) prevention of future failures via precise training and corrective maintenance techniques.

Other companies may not want to “share their recipe” for program success.  However, we’ve found that providing training in total quality maintenance techniques creates a productive client relationship that reduces dependence on constant service, increases equipment reliability, and allows us to provide continued support and training to you whenever necessary.
